Nice hostel. It was very quiet during my stay, which is surprising because the hostel was clean, had nice social areas, good facilities and was very well run. It is a short and very manageable walk from the subway. Nice views from the rooftop area. If there was a little more life around this place it would have been perfect. As a solo traveller I was hoping to meet people.

14th Sep 2016

Great resources and very good social areas. Lockers were provided. No breakfast or warm drinks were provided (unlike other places in Seoul). The hostel is well placed and the facilities were very good. There was a slight problem with my booking but the staff were quick to correct this. One issue: there are only two bathrooms for the whole hostel. These both ran out of toilet roll and one point and there was no member of staff around to offer more. Small thing that can cause a lot of discomfort.

Among the best hostels I've used. Very social. Decent breakfast. Helpful staff. Secure lockers. Clean rooms. No complaints. The atmosphere was the winning factor. The basement area is a great place to meet people. Staff worked really hard to create a fun and social atmosphere (particularly Alessandro). Great stay, strongly recommended for solo travellers looking to stay in Itaewon.

Not a particularly bad hostel, but not a good one either. We were put in a room next to the entrance and social area, which wasn't ideal for sleep. The entrance was very secure, but there were no working lockers in our room. The breakfast was ok. Staff were friendly, but didn't seem the most knowledgeable. They often struggled to give accurate information. There were a number of long-term visitors here looking for work. A school trip was also booked here during our stay.

Excellent hostel, well run with friendly staff. Small breakfast area and short breakfast time actually ends up being beneficial for solo travellers. Very social place. I stayed there twice and had a great stay both times. An ideal starting point if you're new to Myanmar.

Excellent hostel, great social areas. Staff were very helpful. The place had nice clean bathrooms with free shampoo and shower gel. Best place to meet people. The small breakfast area means that you're forced to meet the other guests, which is ideal for a solo traveller. I would strongly recommend this place to anybody that's staying in Myanmar on a budget.

Great hostel with a friendly feel. We had a brief stay in the shared room, but there was a nice little social area and a decent kitchen available for use. Rooms and facilities were clean and well maintained. Staff were very polite and helpful. Really good value for money, had a lovely couple of nights.

I was there for one night, after a long journey from Malapascua and before an afternoon flight. This was an ideal place for my situation. Safe, comfortable and friendly. The staff were really helpful, rooms were clean and there was a great balcony view (ideal for a beer at sunset). Good transport links for quick visits to uptown/downtown. They had a food menu (I didn't order but it looked good) and a small store. Perfect for a flying visit. Had a great stay, thanks!

Stayed there twice whilst in transit. There was some slight confusion with my booking, but the staff were helpful and quickly gave me an upgraded room. Basic, cheap and well placed. I was happy with it overall. Staff were very polite and helpful.

Only stayed briefly, for a single night but was impressed with the value at the hostel. Security was good, staff were helpful, the breakfast was decent and there were some great facilities (pool for 20p per game!). The location wasn't ideal, but everything is still within reach.

Great place for any sort of trip. The boat is really well placed (just a short walk into town), has great facilities and is well looked after. Comfy beds, nice living area and allows you to have your own space without being too far from the busier areas. Had a great stay and would definitely consider staying here again!

Great hostelf, staff were very helpful and friendly. There were regular events and activities set for people to get involved in too. The hostel was close to loads of restaurants and cafes. There was a big supermarket around the corner and it is just a short walk from the main bus terminal. The beach is a 20 minute bus journey, but this isn't much of a problem, since buses pass so often. Thanks to the guys who are still there. Had a great stay x x

I found out that the key to my locker worked on all of the lockers on the room - which is worth worrying about. Other than that, we had a great stay. Not the cheapest though...

No toilet seat in our bathroom, but other that that, it was great. Friendly staff, cable tv and nice rooms. Booked the 2 day bus trip through this hostel too, which was OK.
